Lights FC partners with William Hill as official sports book

The Lights FC added another unique Las Vegas sponsor, announcing a partnership with William Hill as the team’s official sports book Wednesday.

William Hill, which has a mobile app, will offer multiple ways to bet on each Lights match and feature in-game wagering every time the club plays. Also, the sports book is giving away free $5 bets each time the Lights win a match at Cashman Field to all fans who register for a William Hill Mobile Sports account and use the promo code “LIGHTS.”

New account sign-ups require a minimum $100 deposit.

“William Hill is an ideal partner for a pro sports team in Las Vegas,” Lights owner Brett Lashbrook said in a statement. “The $5 free sports bet is one of the greatest sports promotions of all time. What other pro sports team pays its fans when it wins?”
